Make America One Again - 1956

Make America One Again - What happened in 1956?
Let's return to the original USA motto: Out of many ONE!…

"THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" spans the top of the bill, "ONE DOLLAR" is emblazoned along the bottom, and above the central "ONE" are the words "IN GOD WE TRUST," which became the official motto of the United States in 1956. Below the reverse of the Great Seal on the left side of the bill are the words "THE GREAT SEAL," and below the obverse on the right side are the words "OF THE UNITED STATES."

The eagle holds a ribbon in its beak reading "E PLURIBUS UNUM," a Latin phrase meaning "Out of many [states], one [nation]," a de facto motto of the United States (and the only one until 1956).

Fragile Digital Memory

The digital media is so fragile.

I started metadeepmix project in 2014's based on Parse backend, which will be retired in Jan 2017. Hopefully Parse will live on as open source at parse-server on github. I would need to convert metadeepmix from Parse backend to Parse server. More work, with little benefit. Maybe time better spent converting to open source SOLR based backed and get full text search.

Thinking about update to webdb site (about W.E.B Du Bois 1900 Paris photo exhibit on progress of African American since emancipation). The site started of as a page in metadeepmix site and I extracted it so that it did not depend on the Parse backend, only html and json.

Considering adding reference to as a contemporary record of African American's in American.

Should document of metadeepix before Parse backend dies (screen shots, screen video recording).

Considering documenting development of metadeepmix as a computer science learning story.
